The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has been given ‘honorary’ registration with the nursing regulator.
In the controversial move, Jeremy Hunt is now a qualified nurse in all four fields of care; adult, paediatrics, mental health and learning disability and is seeking to qualify as a Midwife.
His ‘lifetime’ membership will see Mr Hunt exempt from annual registration fees as well as revalidation.
His qualifications simply read as the ‘Secretary of State for Health and Social Care’.
Mr Hunt is said to be seeking a “laid-back” senior management role without patient contact in preparation for his retirements from politics.
Following recent pay reform proposals, NHS Employers are said to be making ‘special’ pay arrangements due to his wealth of knowledge and experience.
In a statement, Head of Registration Services at the nursing regulator, Mary McDonald said; “We understand and wanted to recognise the hard work Mr Hunt has put into ensuring the future of the nursing profession”.
“While registrant numbers are down, we emphasise to our members the age-old proverb – it’s about quality, not quantity”.
